Two familiar faces within the DC Extended Universe and one whose we’ll know a lot more about next year with the release of Patty Jenkins Wonder Woman, will be returning for Zack Snyder’s Justice League movie later in 2017.
Warner Bros sent out a press kit for their upcoming movies in 2017 which included confirmation that Jesse Eisenberg’s Lex Luthor, Diane Lane’s Martha Kent and Connie Nielson Queen Hippolyta would all appear in the DC Comics superhero team up film.

Action Adventure. Fueled by his restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman’s selfless act, Bruce Wayne enlists the help of his newfound ally, Diana Prince, to face an even greater enemy. Together, Batman and Wonder Woman work quickly to find and recruit a team of metahumans to stand against this newly awakened threat. But despite the formation of this unprecedented league of heroes—Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and The Flash—it may already be too late to save the planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions.
Justice League will hit screens November 17, 2017
